Toni Kroos alternatives at Manchester United
Despite the very interest from Manchester United, it wouldn’t at all be a surprise if David Moyes ultimately fails to land Toni Kroos in the summer from Bayern Munich. The 24 year old is currently unwilling to extend his contract at the Bvarian club but with the quality he possesses, Bayern would do anything possible to extend his contract to keep him at the Allianz Arena. Kroos, would attract a lot of suitors but United must be well aware of last summer when their relentless pursuit for Cesc Fabregas, Thiago Alcantara and Ander Herrera ultimately proved futile at the end. So we here at Soccersouls decided to provide David Moyes three backup options if the Scot fails to land Kroos at Old Trafford.
1. Ikay Gundogan:
A brilliant deep lying playmaker and another German, Gundogan has also been linked to Manchester United by a majority of tabloids. With sublime quality on the ball and graceful poise, Gundogan can create from anywhere in midfield and is one of the major driving force in Dortmund’s enviable midfield. Even though injuries have ruled him out of the season completely, it is believed that Moyes will use another former Dortmund man, Shinji Kagawa, who has failed to make a mark at Old Trafford, as bait to land the 23 year old German.
